Are you the proud owner/operator of a high school student? Your new, increasingly independent child changed just a little? How about the new challenges your child faces: Potential job? Driver’s Ed? Social media, social life and social decisions? RESPONSIBILITIES?
And don’t forget… more homework, more activities, more independence and less sleep may not always work well together! Five months into this school year, has high school brought you, the parent, a whole new set of “parenting opportunities?” Don’t you wish you could sometimes compare notes and stories with other parents in your child’s grade – or gather some accumulated wisdom for parents who have already walked the path you’re on, been through all the ups and downs of parenting a high school student, just to know that you aren’t really the “only parent who acts that way?”
Well… YOU CAN! Please join fellow DeLaSalle parents this Monday, February 8, from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. for
Parent “Know and Tell”
Shared Wisdom About the Adolescents We Parent and Love
Let’s again meet together at De to tell stories, laugh, and share our collective parental wisdom: What you already KNOW (or should know) about your child and his or her experiences… and what you could TELL other parents about this unique age. This forum for parents will present an organized opportunity to share common experiences about driving, curfews, weekend socializing, nutrition, rest and schedule balance, social media use, and so much more that affects every teen and every household. Parents of ninth and tenth graders will no doubt learn some valuable tips shared by more “seasoned” parents of the De community.
This event is sponsored by the DeLaSalle Parent Association. As always, light refreshments will be served and there will be a report from a school administrator. Any Questions, please contact Parent Association Co-Chairs, Jackie Schluter Johnson or Luann Mishler, or Staff Liaison, Mike O’Keefe. We look forward to seeing you on Monday!
